* Follow the [http://www.linuxtv.org/wiki/index.php/TBS6280#Making_it_Work_.28Closed_source.29 'Make it Work (Closed Source)' instructions for the TBS 6280] until you need to type make to compile the drivers. Do not run the make command just yet!
* As per the readme provided by TBS, run one of the following depending on your system:
; for x86 kernel 3.x (x86 32 bit installations of kernel 3.x):
See [[TBS driver installation]]
: # ./v4l/tbs-dvbc-x86_r3.sh
== IRQ Issues ==
; for x86 kernel 2.6.x (x86 32 bit installations of kernel 2.6.x):
See [[TBS driver installation#IRQ_Issues]]
: # ./v4l/tbs-dvbc-x86.sh
==External Links==
; for any x86_64 kernel (x86 64 bit installations of Linux):
: # ./v4l/tbs-dvbc-x86_64.sh
* You can then run the make command and continue the 6280 instructions to finish compiling the driver as normal.

A dual DVB-T/DVB-T2 PCIe card from TurboSight. It is the successor to the TBS6280.

The manufacturer officially supports Linux, and there is on-going development of their driver, although it is supplied as a binary blob. There is now an open source driver available at Open Source TBS drivers.

Like many other TBS cards, this one uses saa716x PCI express bridge that still isn't available in the kernel tree.


  • PCI-e x1
  • Dual Tuner DVB-T/DVB-T2 card
  • RF antenna pass-through
